    CES is caused by compression of the spine nerve roots . Herniated discs , spinal stenosis , trauma can compress the nerves.

    Cauda Equina is not a " back problem " it is a serious spinal condition.

      Nerves can repair but it can take years. It all depends on how long the nerves have been damaged.

      Sometimes acceptance may be the only way

      I know it is hard when the outcome is not what is expected.

      I have met a lot of people with disabilities from birth. I look at them and see their strength and realise how lucky I am to have been able bodied for so long.

      Yearning for what is lost is normal but not productive.

      Do what you can when you can



      Dont let this change who you are.


      I am no longer able to feel much below my waist but I smile and do all the things I used to do with a few adaptions
